to find. >> okay. >> hello, commissioners, steve methiason centralization and the different things that we are dealing with on broadway and central one of the things was several of the adult entertainment and night clubs are pushing the customers out of the clubs at 2:00 a.m. and closing their doors and not taking control of their patrons once they have got them out there. so sergeant gains is going around the different clubs and kind of advising them that they are still responsible for their patrons just because it is 2:00 and they are out of the door it does not mean that they get to go home, everybody has to be safe and along their way as well as not being loud and fighting. several small restaurants are operating after 2:00 without extended how widers permits and they are advised as well and more of an issue on broad way. >> i spoke with john regarding the loit tering at the adult entertainment venues and he sent out the letters and it seems to be helpful as far as not having the loitering out in front. and we met with a long shore man halls regarding the safety plan, that went actuall
for you later. thank you. opening up for public comment, timothy thin, steve griffin, john goldman, kathleen mull duffin, and kathrin nemeth. >>> hello, thank you for letting me speak. my name is tim thin. i've lived down the street from the church for 25 years. they've been an excellent neighbor and did a good job of reaching out to the neighborhood on their previous project. i have consulted with a number of neighbors who could not be here tonight. their main concern is actually the traffic situation. the change of child care facility from 15 to 45 kids is tripling the capacity of that facy. there is no parking, there is no loading zone. and, you know, it's changing the church from a church to a day care center to a school. and as i understand there is no staff to manage the drop-offs and pick ups. the neighbors have concerns. they would normally expect outreach about this part of the project and this change to this facility. they would expect a traffic plan. they would normally expect somebody to supervise pick ups and drop offs. james lick, a school up the street, has crossing
. >>> thank you, president fong, members of the commission. steve williams again. addressing the entire presentation of mr. low, this is not about mr. low. we have people here from across the street, from down the street, from behind, from in front. when you can't get a single supporter for your project, not one supporter for your project, something's wrong. he didn't put up story pole. your plans are not to scale. you wouldn't even supply a set of the plans to the neighbors. that's something that went wrong here. the graphics flashed on the screen. first time we've seen them. they're not to scale. they're not accurate. they're not submitted. they showed the same photos of what they claim is the neighborhood. the project site is not in any of the photos they showed. that is a block and a half north where the high-rises are. the lowe's penthouse is not an occupied space. you heard that from his sister eva chan low. it is a 200 square foot laundry room and you can't compare that to a 1300 square foot fifth floor addition. it's a historic anomaly that was put on the building when it was bu
